    Abstract

    Weak power supply networks are very sensitive to non-linear low power loads. Electronics in low power loads are non-linear, very basic, and consisting of a rectifier bridge and bulk capacitor, consuming current only in the peak of the supplied voltage. Due to the relative high power supply network impedance the waveform of the supplied voltage is heavily distorted. In this paper the effect of energy saving lights on a mobile generator, simulating a weak grid, is studied.
